Obtaining an Order
In Alabama, you may file for a restraining order only in a limited number
of situations. However, if you qualify for one of these orders, you can
obtain temporary protection quickly and then work to make the protection
permanent if you believe your situation may warrant it.
You may obtain a restraining order if:
- You have been the victim of abuse or domestic violence
- If you have reasonable cause to believe you are in danger of becoming the
victim of abuse
Restraining orders almost always start out as temporary, but can be made
permanent later at a hearing where both sides present why the order should
or should not be allowed to continue. This means you should have a Birmingham
domestic violence attorney on your side to make sure your rights are protected
from an abuser.
Have an Order Filed Against You?
Unfortunately, in some cases domestic violence accusations are falsely
levied against innocent individuals, leading to all sorts of consequences
that can have a serious impact on their life. If you have had an order
issued against you when you believe you are innocent of any act of abuse,
it’s important you move quickly to fight back and preserve your
rights and freedoms. After all, an order could have a potential impact
on your rights to visitation or your claim to child custody.
